Troy Anthony Davis Granted Stay of Execution by SCOTUS

Good news:

The U.S. Supreme Court on Tuesday issued a stay of execution for Troy Anthony Davis less than two hours before he was to be put to death by lethal injection.

Davis’ family and supporters, who for years have pressed for a new trial on claims Davis is innocent, broke into tears and song when they learned the high court had at least temporarily postponed the execution.

I hate that they always wait until the last minute, but good news nonetheless.
